Sparkle and Shine

My house as always been very casual. I don't usually like fancy. My style is starting to change.

I think I might want to spruce things up a little.

Add some sparkle.

Maybe some all out crazy glamour. What do you think? Do you like a little sparkle?
(God forbid, do you think my taste is "maturing"?)

  1. Personally, I feel as all houses need a pop of glamour, not over the top but tasteful, well appropriated glamour.

  2. Gosh, I adore that first picture- haven't seen it anywhere!! I love a little glam, and I think you can add it to a casual house. I've seen other parts of that Palmer Weiss house, and I think it has a great balance. Fun with some glam thrown in!

  3. I agree with the other commenters - I think a little glamour looks great. I'm trying to add a little sparkle to my own house.

  11. Pick one room and give it a little glitter!
    PS-- we are heading to Wilmington for the weekend (with a 1 and 3 year old in tow and only one night of babysitting. What should we do? What restaurants are must-try?)

  12. The last image is a bit more glitzy, but the first two I'd call casual elegance. I would feel really comfortable in those rooms.

  13. Sissy--Thanks! We want one really nice meal out (our sitter meal) and the rest will be with kids, although ours are fairly used to being draged to restaurants, so we don't need strictly "family" places. We like all kinds of food-- seafood, mexican, etc. My email is hootbabymail@gmail.com

  17. I love sparkle, shine and GLAM! And I bet you could pull it off so well... just a few elements here and there, mixing your casual style with a few glam touches (kind of like Carolina Herrera in that great crisp white shirt and diamonds with jeans and flats).

    I would love to glam up my house, but it's kind of hard to be glam when everything you own is fifth generation hand-me-down or found in a barn!

  18. Oh yes. A little sparkle can be a good thing. Love that second photo! I remember that Elle Decor shot. I think elements of that room are great and would be easy to adapt.

  19. I love a little sparkle and shine. Don't think of it as maturing but rather as moving with the ebb and flow of life. I used to want to be all bohemian and sich and I hate black furniture and look at me now!
